Construction - Concrete structures Britannica

Construction - Construction - Concrete structures: Reinforced concrete, because of its inherent strength in compression, is primarily used for long spans in funicular compression forms, including vaults, shells, and domes. Thin parabolic shell vaults stiffened with ribs have been built with spans up to about 90 metres (300 feet). More complex forms of concrete shells have been made, including ...

Construction Joints in Concrete Structures - Structural Guide

Let’s discuss the advantage of construction joints in concrete structures. Advantages. Providing construction joint in concrete limits the area to be concreted in a one pour. For example, when there is a large area to be concreted, we divide the area into several pours. It speeds up the construction work as part completion of work can proceed to concrete work. Further, a large area cannot be ...

Reinforced concrete - Designing Buildings Wiki

Reinforced concrete (RC) is a versatile composite and one of the most widely used materials in modern construction. Concrete is a relatively brittle material that is strong under compression but less so in tension. Plain, unreinforced concrete is unsuitable for many structures as it is relatively poor at withstanding stresses induced by ...
